    The hugely powerful and pervasive presence of the Colossus supercomputer mechanically runs Earth and its myriad operations.

As part of its brief to enhance the human race, it runs eerie emotion research centers, authorizing acts of savagery to measure resistance and feeling. Art and abstract creation are banned, and surveillance is constant. No one is free.
